I’m so frustrated that my condition is rare and unknown to most people. I keep having to explain everything again and again to doctors and nurses because they’re unfamiliar with it but they all think they know better than me and talk down to me. I’m steroid dependent and my adrenal glands don’t work, you have to give me extra hydrocortisone during invasive tests unless you want me to die! If this is how they act when I’m conscious I have no faith in them for emergencies.
but like neurotypicals need to get it through their heads that people with personality disorders can be abused much differently than them. Repeatedly and purposefully ignoring borderline people is abuse. Taking advantage of the trust of dependent people and leaving them on their own to "test them” is abuse. Little things they may not consider being abuse may actually BE abuse to those people. So like stop pretending that what we call abuse “isn’t legitimate” just because it’s not in your neurotypical standards of what is and isn’t abuse.
no offense but i’m constantly terrified of upsetting the people i love to the point where they’ll abandon me and it stops me from/makes me panic over saying or doing the smallest things on an almost daily basis
